REPOST // The perfect bridal pink lipstick shades

For a classic bridal makeup look there’s nothing more chic than a nude, pink lipstick shade.  But, like skin tones, nude lipsticks come in a myriad of beautiful shades.  Whether you like a ‘true’ nude in a beige colour or a subtle pink or orange hue to enhance the natural colour of your lips, one of my top 5 nude lipsticks will be perfect for your wedding day.  For those who are die-hard matte lipstick addicts, Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk is your NBF, but if you’re a satin-finish girl (and even like a bit of shimmer) you need a Nars Satin Lipstick in your make up bag! x

Kim’s sunny wedding at Highfield Park Hotel, Hook

I arrived to a very warm and sunny Highfield Park Hotel in Hook this morning to begin working with bride Kim, creating her classic wedding makeup design.  I met Kim way back in October last year to do a bridal makeup trial with her, as she simply couldn’t wait to get stuck in and plan her perfect wedding.

Kim just really wanted something that wouldn’t date and remain ‘timeless’ in her wedding photography – which was to be conducted by DM Photography.  We both decided warm browns, a neat lined eye, rosy cheeks and pink lips were the way to go…so that’s exactly what I did.  Kim already has exceptional skin so I didn’t really need to cover any of that flawless base, instead opting for a light coverage using MAC Face & Body Fluid foundation.  I actually created a bespoke lip colour for Kim using MAC lipstick in LoveLorn with Chanel 54 Boy lipstick – Kim loved it and I think it works to pull everything together x
